The viral fly that landed on Mike Pence's head during the vice presidential debate deserves a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame at this point. But after all the commotion and all the memes, Kamala Harris has now given us her reaction and it's pretty hilarious...
Who'd have thought one insect could create such a viral snowstorm?
via: GettyAs soon as the pesky fly took its spot on Pence's silver head of hair, #FlyGate was quick to start trending on Twitter.
And now, over a week after it happened, Kamala Harris has finally given us her reaction to the incident...
via: GettyAnd the video is pretty hilarious.
You all watched the vice-presidential debate, right?
via: GettyLast week, Vice President Pence went head-to-head with his Democratic challenger, Kamala Harris, in the year's first and only vice presidential debate.
Plenty of shots were fired...
via: GettyIn the 90-minute live debate at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Harris accused Pence and the president of deliberately misleading Americans about the lethality of coronavirus. "They knew, and they covered it up."
However, Pence shot back by accusing the Biden-Harris campaign of copying the White House's pandemic strategy...
via: GettyReferring to a blunder that ended Biden's 1987 run for the presidency when he plagiarized a speech.
Page then quizzed Harris on whether she would be taking any government-approved vaccine in the run-up to the election...
via: GettyIn which Harris responded by stating firmly that she "would not take a jab touted by Mr. Trump without the say-so of medical professionals."
Of course, this didn't sit well with Pence, who heads the White House coronavirus task force.
via: GettyHe retorted: "The fact that you continue to undermine public confidence in a vaccine if the vaccine emerges during the Trump administration I think is unconscionable."
Putting the pandemic to one side, a whole array of other topics were brushed upon throughout the evening...

However, Pence doesn't think our country has any racism issues.

But, out of all the memorable moments the debate had to offer...
via: GettyThere was one slightly more ridiculous occasion that has stuck in people's minds.
As mentioned earlier, a fly landed on Pence's head during the debate...
via: GettyAnd viewers were transfixed.
Ridiculously, the fly stayed in its position for around 5 minutes...
via: GettyAs Pence, clearly oblivious to his visitor, continued with the debate.
Of course, Twitter has been a #FlyGate minefield ever since...

But now, his opponent in that very debate has given us her hilarious reaction to the incident.
via: YouTubeSo far, no one has had the guts to ask Kamala Harris if she'd noticed the fly until now.
Rachel Maddow said that she'd kick herself if she didn't ask...
via: YouTubeAnd of course, Harris tried her best to keep it in, but she just couldn't. The laughter overtook her as she nodded in response to the question: "Did you notice the fly on VP Pence's head?"
And that also sent the host into hysterics too.
via: YouTubeWhat an iconic moment.
